One Outfielder the Dodgers Need to Trade For If He Becomes Available

The Dodgers currently sit atop the National League West at 33-22 — the second-best record in the entire National League. However, they have achieved this record with little, to no, help offensively from their outfield.

As the deadline approaches, it seems likely that the Dodgers will address this group by adding a bat. DodgersNation’s own Doug McKain broke down his top five outfielders that Los Angeles should acquire — headlined by Tyler O’Neill of the Boston Red Sox.

Now, the Red Sox might not trade away pieces at the deadline. They have a 27-26 record and are 9.5 games back in the American League East. They are 1.5 games back of the final wild-card spot. If they hover around that last wild card spot come July, they could add to try and make a playoff push.

However, if they do deal at the deadline, O’Neill will certainly draw some interest around the league. On the year, the 30-year-old has a .843 OPS with 11 home runs.

The Dodgers could desperately use this bat in the outfield and toward the bottom of their lineup. Also, he may not be too expensive. He would be a true rental and the Dodgers would only need to pay the remainder of his $5.85 million contract.

    1. I say move Mookie to 2nd base and trade Lux and some prospects for a shortstop or a bat, we need both. Do it at the trade deadline and finally get Willie Adames. Heck Milwaukee might even take Chris Taylor in the deal!

  1. I don’t get it. Oneill has had one good season, 2021, with a .286 BA, 34 homers, and a +6 WAR. Other than that he was a .260 hitter his first couple of years, with no power, and the last 3 years he has been not much better than any other outfielder. Why do the Ds keep bringing in guys on the downslide and expect that they will have a great turnaround here?
